driven decline in energy prices well beyond what the markets are handicapping. i can't say that's a 2013 event but it does seem like the clues are piling up in that direction. that would be tremendously bullish. that's an underappreciated element of a pos 90s boom. very cheap energy without being driven by economic weakness. that's one thing. and then i guess on the potential negative side i really do think that there's always the chance that the central banks have kind of, you know, kind of -- they've basically have the system in therapy right now and they think they have the medical dosages right in terms of free money. and if they sort of lose control, whether it's in europe or somewhere else, i really do think the markets should be unprepared for that if we go down a few months down that road. >> mike, ezra, good to have you on the program. thanks so much. >> thank you. >> have a great new year. >>> up next on the "the wall street journal report," the faces that made the news of 2013 on our show. we will bring you the >>> the meerz deens bend winter event is back with a perfect

be up here. a lot of energy to the healing circle as well. as a juvenile, i was in juvenile hall and i went through that whole system myself. i have worked with tattoo removal, i went to other development programs. through personal experience and being raised by a single mom and being proud of my dad imprisoned and now pursuing my education, i would say there is not one answer. the answer is that there is not an answer. you have brought about by bringing this conversation forum. it is not just law enforcement perspective, it is not just the community-based perspective, it is not just the research perspective, it is a multi- layered approach. first and foremost, we do have to consider meeting youth where they are act. we are talking about perpetrators of violence or what not or system involved or involved in gangs, we have to meet them where they are at. pain and hurt produces more hurt, right? what is fundamental it is addressing back pain -- addressing that pain. not looking at folks in a punitive way and saying, this guy is notorious, we have to lock him up. that person is hurting.

extremely excited. >> reporter: mike dickinson works for noble energy, which is doubling its production in weld county. this oil field stretches from colorado into wyoming. in 2008, it produced 83,000 barrels of oil, yet this year it is expected to reach nearly ten million barrels. how different is the technology that we're seeing here today versus what you were doing out here a couple of years ago? >> it's unrecognizable today compared to what we were doing just two or three years ago. >> reporter: oil companies used to mainly drill vertical wells, hitting one pool of oil. but now they are rapidly converting to horizontal wells up to a mile long and combining them with fracking operations which split open rocks, releasing oil once considered out of reach. and one drilling rigs can now install multiple wells in one location, making it more cost- efficient. a horizontal well produces seven to ten times more oil than a vertical well. >> today, we're not running any vertical rigs, and we're running eight horizontals. >> reporter: so this really is the future of what you're doing

to get worse. >> the government announced the energy u-turn last year after the fukushima nuclear disaster. it wants the country to abandon nuclear power and turn to renewable sources such as the wind and the sun but the power grid isn't ready. they visited a plant near berlin to see what progress is being made in improving the grid. he says he worries about the short-term finaltial gain but the benefits are great. >> we are explaining the nature of the challenge. but after all, there is quite an impressive public support for the energy u-turn. more than half of the people are in favor of it. >> but there's another number thatening la merkel might need to worry about it. 4/5th of germans might be thinking of their electricity bill when they choose their next government. if a long, hard winter brings big bills then she might be paying the price as well. >> venezuela has one of the highest murder rates in the world. crime usually spikes in the days leading up to the new year. >> a man brutally disposes of his pregnant girlfriend. the child is miraculously born in the gutter and resc

system coming in is falling apart. it's splitting losing its shear, losing some of its energy. now, disregard this 59 in livermore. the thermometer went bad about 6:00 this morning. but 40s everywhere else. i've seen not far away about 45. 46 antioch, 48 fairfield. they were down to 29 this morning, so was napa and santa rosa. a lot of 30s. right at 50 or upper 40s. 6 below in tahoe. now a balmy 29. 42 in ukiah. it was 28 this morning. a lot of 20s including clearlake. i doubt there's any shower activity up in the northern part of the state. but that's really the extent it because most of this is heading down to southern california. in fact, we'll get some clouds but overall, the clouds will be sliding south. as it goes south and splits it takes away some of its energy. still kind of chilly, below average temperatures. cloud cover will be in later. sunny here, a little bit of increasing clouds. mostly sunny, partly cloudy. not much of a breeze. still chilly temperatures with upper 40s and very low 50s. a little warmer by the bay. not a lot. just a little bit. it does look like the
